Do you have a list of the most common drugs that you type on a day-to-day basis that you have added to your shortcuts, autocorrects, or expanders?
Have you ever had a hard time finding medications when transcribing your reports because you cannot understand what the provider is dictating?
Can you always remember which drugs are capitalized (brand or generic) and which are not?
Here at Medical Transcription Help Desk we have experienced the same frustrations.
You may choose to have an ongoing medication list that you reference to on a daily basis or you may put all your drugs in as shortcuts, autocorrects, or expanders. If you are using medications in the body of the report, for example, you then need to know if it is capitalized (brand names are capitalized and most generic names are not).
Here are some drugs that MTs type on a day-to-day basis. For an extensive list of medications, check out the MT Help Desk membership.
